Comments: Kudos to the marketing geniuses at this Worcester, MA brewery for coming up with an irresistible name.  The beer came in a tulip style glass which displayed it’s dark amber color and plentiful carbonation.  The scent was flowery and the taste was a good balance of bitter hops and a sweet citrus aftertaste.  An interesting beer that is not like other IPA’s I’ve sampled.  I’d like to try more beers from this brewery.

Comments: This Belgian style beer comes from Cooperstown, NY and is an attractive cloudy, pale yellow beer served with a slice of orange.  The aroma is grassy and earthy and the taste is sharp and tangy with a citrus sweet aftertaste.  The head disappeared quickly and left behind moderate lacing.  Overall this was a decent beer, crisp and refreshing, and suited to a hot summer evening.
